Article Title
Short Description
Myofascial foam rolling has become a popular tool as part of both warm-up and cool down prior to activity. Despite its popularity, little research has been performed on the mechanisms or efficacy of foam rolling.
Foam rolling is a relatively new therapeutic approach, but early research suggests that it can help improve range of motion and muscle performance and aid in recovery after exercise. Questions remain, however, about the extent to which the effects involve myofascial mechanisms.
Drs. Dave Behm and Duane Button teamed up to provide this article in Training and Conditioning magazine about their research on Thera-Band Roller Massagers and Foam Rollers.
David Behm PhD, and Duane Button PhD, both with Memorial University in Newfoundland Canada, are the leading researchers in myofascial rolling. Their experiments were the first to quantify improvements in range of motion from myofascial rolling.
